"Fizz, Boom, Read!" is the theme for programs at the Pierce-Streetsboro Branch of the Portage County District Library this summer. Registration for Summer Reading Club and Storytime begins May 28 and may be done by visiting the library or calling 330-626-4458.
Summer Reading Club is for children who have finished grades kindergarten through fourth. Programs will be on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. from the week of June 9 to the week of July 7.
Each week will include stories, games, crafts, and perhaps reader's theaters or puppet shows. Each child is asked to read every day between weekly meetings.
The Kent State University Trumbull Summer Stock Theater will present a play at the July 8 meeting, and Dawn Alber of Meadowsweet Farm will be at the July 9 meeting.
Also, Outback Ray will bring his animals on July 14 during the end party beginning at 1 p.m. in the city park behind the library for participants of both Summer Reading Club and Storytime.
The Youth Program is for students who have completed grades five through 12.
With every book checked out, each student may enter a drawing for a chance to win a gift certificate from Target. This program will begin June 9 and end on July 9. There will be two winners drawn.
Storytime for ages 2 to 5 will meet on Tuesdays at 11:15 a.m. or Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. starting the week of June 9 and ending the week of July 7. Storytimes include stories, music, crafts, puppets, finger plays and flannel board stories.
The library is also looking for volunteers who have completed at least grade five to help with the Summer Reading Club program.
Visit the library or call 330-626-4458 to volunteer or for more information.
The library is located at 8990 Kirby Lane (next to the Streetsboro City Schools Administration Building).
